Default IOS App rule Change per 2/1/2014

The new rule goes into effect on February 1, 2014 and means that any apps built on older versions of Xcode or non-iOS 7 optimized apps will be rejected from the App Store.

In addition, this also applies to app updates, providing some inspiration for developers to update their developer tools and optimize their apps for iOS 7 as the updates will be rejected otherwise. Optimizing an app for iOS 7 does not necessarily mean it needs to look different, but that the underlying construction of the app must be optimized for the new OS.

They will, but they need to be compiled for IOS7 so people are forced to move on.

I think he means everyone will have to update and therefore, stop saying it.

So glad I updated back when castle of illusion came out, otherwise I'd be so pissed right about now.

I don't care about the look, but 500MB RAM is still quite tight for iOS7. What's the point of being able to purchase new apps if half of them lag? Really, Apple and their hardware upgrade progress...
